Tomcatt - I will be in the middle of this trip June 5-13, but I will keep an eye out for next year.

Here is my planned ride, going East first, then south and back around North to home.
Making a quick stop at Makers Mark for some pictures with the bike. Each color is a different day. I have one built in open day incase of crap weather.

Sticking to the 400 miles or less a day or about 6-7 riding hours.

Trying to stay off the interstates and away from big cities for the most part.

I've traveled a bunch of this area going to matches.

I don't like running down interstates. Running down 65 sucks. You might consider following 47 South then 24 East to 421 and take it Southeast to Indianapolis. You can cut off more interstate taking 38 across (from 421) to 70. It drops you onto 70 near Dayton.

Just options.

Sorry, I used the wrong word, I should have said just make sure you have mask and what ever else is needed for covid restrictions, all states are different, I never want to offend anyone, and if I did I am sincerely sorry,

God has blessed me with a long life and enjoyment with fellow bikers like all of you all which I am very thankful for, sincerely, Larry May
